RESPONSIBLE DOG OWNERSHIP
Buying a dog is a huge responsibility. Having a dog takes a lot of time, money and commitment. By accepting the General Terms and Conditions, the Buyer undertakes that she or he will be a Responsible Dog Owner that is determined by the following criteria:
As a Responsible Dog Owner the Buyer is conscious of owning a dog, a living thing and always keeps this in eyesight. For a Responsible Dog Owner the safety, health, comfort and long-term happiness of a dog are paramount.
As a Responsible Dog Owner the Buyer always provides proper nutrition and fresh water for his or her dog.
As a Responsible Dog Owner the Buyer begins grooming his or her dog when she or he is still a puppy to be used to it at an early age. Grooming is more than just maintaining the cleanliness of a dog. Regular grooming is about the physical health and well-being of a dog and not just his or her good-looking appearance.
As a Responsible Dog Owner the Buyer recognizes the importance of socialization of his or her dog as it is a key factor to his or her overall wellness and health. Improperly socialized dogs are fearful of unusual or new circumstances and may risk other people, children or dogs.
As a Responsible Dog Owner the Buyer makes sure that his or her dog receives proper training and should obey certain commands such as: Sit, Down, Stay and Come. Walking on leash or without it is also part of a good training.
As a Responsible Dog Owner the Buyer provides daily exercise to his or her dog. Mental stimulation is just as important as physical exercises. Playtime and attention is a key factor of having a happy dog and being a happy owner.
As a Responsible Dog Owner the Buyer provides proper medical attention for his or her dog and keeps all necessary vaccinations current. The Buyer is aware and ready to bear the medical costs in case his or her dog falls sick and needs medical care.
As a Responsible Dog Owner the Buyer ensures his or her dog’s proper identification such as registered microchip and collar tags.
As a Responsible Dog Owner the Buyer is not only responsible for his or her dog but also for any neighbor and community where he and his dog(s) live.
As a Responsible Dog Owner the Buyer always properly picks up and disposes of his or her dog’s poop.
As a Responsible Dog Owner the Buyer always observes and respects the local leash and other laws related to owning a dog.
The Buyer will not sell or give his or her dog to a pet shop, retail store, dog dealer, animal testing facility, research facility or an agent for any such business or facility.
The Seller reserves the right to take back a dog in case of improper treatment of the dog. In this case no refund will be paid.

The Seller’s personalized Customer Service operates on workdays (Mon-Fri) from 8 am until 7 pm Central European Time (CET).
If the Buyer wants to reach the Customer Service out of office time, he or she should leave a message and they will contact him shortly.
The Seller will investigate and reply in writing to every complaint within 30 days from the date of receiving it. If the Seller rejects a complaint, he has to justify the reason and keep the reply for one year for the Hungarian authorities supervising his activity.
The Seller does not guarantee temperament but assure that every dog advertised on the website was born and lived in a secure and loving environment in the breeders’ household and got daily proper socialization. After receiving the ordered dog, it is the Buyer’s responsibility to provide a good and safe environment with proper socialization.
The Seller cannot guarantee that the Buyer can breed the ordered dog but if the Buyer is interested the Seller can let him or her know his professional opinion.
There is no guarantee that the ordered dog evaluated to be of “Show Quality” will be successful in the show ring as an adult. However, the Seller encourages the Buyer to participate in these events.
